The Board of Trustees of the Sharjah Excellence Award recently announced that the registration in the seven categories of the Award edition 2020 is free for all economic enterprises.
Sharjah Excellence Award is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and organized by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry, SCCI.
The move comes as part of the stimulus initiatives launched by the SCCI within the economic stimulus package adopted by the Sharjah government to support the government and private agencies, business sectors, and individuals. This also underlines the SCCI’s commitment to backing the business sector through the launch of the innovative initiatives and the vigorous follow up on the latest updates to mitigate the burdens on the private sector in Sharjah.
In the same context, the Board of Trustees has called on the business communities in the UAE and GCC to take part in the Award and to make use of its numerous benefits, including the awareness programs and courses which aim to enhance the culture of institutional quality and excellence and adopt the best practices in the private sector.
The Board of Trustees has stated earlier this month that the registration is available only online through the Award website to maintain the public health and safety and to keep pace with the precautionary measures adopted by the UAE government to contain the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19), pointing out that the deadline for registration is until the end of next October.
The Sharjah Excellence Award aims to strengthen corporate governance and encourage the adoption of quality standards and business ethics, through arbitration methodologies aligned with international best practices and the latest models of institutional evaluation. The award is also committed to helping the private sector in Sharjah enhance their performance and services, as well as their responsibilities toward the community, in addition to encouraging environmentally friendly practices and enhancing the role of economic enterprises in driving forward the sustainable development.
